What Sets This Ohio Bar Apart:

  • 1New 190,000 PSI Steel

    This steel is manufactured in the US and has proven to be one of the best steel variants for a multi-purpose barbell. Each barbell shaft is ground and polished prior to machining which allows the bar to have a very smooth finish post any black oxide or black zinc finish.

  • 2Machining

    Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus, Ohio. A great deal of pride is built into each bar as the knurling process is an art. We spent months working on the knurl we believe to be the best for the Ohio Bar. To test the knurl it is more a beer tasting process than exact measurement. There is a look and feel that go into testing every bar.

  • 3Fit and Finish

    Each Ohio Bar finish offers a different level of oxidization protection and has a direct effect on the feel of the knurl.

    Black Oxide is a mild oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment will still require some maintenance but will give the best knurl feel, more like a naked bar.

    Zinc is a medium oxidization protectant process. This type of steel treatment requires minimal maintenance and is used on The Rogue and Bella Bars.

    The Ohio Bar is also available in Stainless Steel & an advanced ceramic-based coating called Cerakote.

  • 4Assembly

    The Ohio Bar is assembled with bronze bushings which act as bearing surfaces between the bar sleeve and bar shaft. This is a very robust way of building a barbell. Each bar will come with an Ohio Bar card that has the initials of the Rogue team member that built the bar.

  • 5Performance

    This bar will have normal “whip” during Olympic weightlifting and enough stiffness to hold for heavy powerlifting. The steel in this bar is proven as an excellent choice for weightlifters.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

*Warranty against bending does not cover any bar which has been damaged due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user. Negligent or faulty use includes abusive dropping of the bar (i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage). Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. We have found that most problems with bars we replace are related to abusive use rather than manufacturing or materials issues.

Whichever barbell finish you choose, Rogue has provided some helpful tips for long term Bar Care & Maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid bar My last bar was a cheap CAP bar and was deadlifting with it and it came apart and broke. The Ohio bar from rogue is solid. When I picked it up I could automatically tell it was a superior quality. The Rogue brand has a reputation that holds its own. If you want an excellent bar, this is awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent bar I got my Ohio bar one month ago and I’ve been using it every other day, for bench press and squat/deadlifts. Great quality. Perfect for my garage gym. Only thing: black zinc gets scratched easily with normal use, so I’d rather get it all silver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bar! I love my new bar. It works out great for everything I do. Very versatile and holds up to everything! I used to think that a bar was a bar. My friend talked me into getting a Rogue and I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar! I bought this bar for my husband as a replacement for one that came with his first bench set years ago. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! You can definitely feel quality when lifting this bar. Very solid, sturdy, and an awesome grip - no slipping possible on this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bar! I had a cheap bar that came with a set from my local fitness superstore. Total junk. Love the black zinc coating on the new Ohico bar and the bar has great grip. I'm hooked on Rogue equipment and I will be ordering more.
